BC has over 150 craft breweries across the province as of mid-2017. With those, we are pushing almost 1000 different locally crafted beers (Including seasonals). Whether you are looking for a craft beer in Vancouver or looking to do a road trip across the province to expand your horizons we have you covered with the BC craft brewery listing.
Vancouver's craft brewery district is split almost down the middle into two distinctly different regions, both only 5 minutes from their own sides of downtown Vancouver.
Just a stones throw from downtown Vancouver and gas town you'll want to spend a full weekend from Friday to Monday just to see them all. While here you also have a couple distilleries, cider houses & wineries that are worth the stop.
Based in the area that had just as many breweries before prohibition this area is know for amazing water for brewing. You can start from one of two sky train stations, or start at one and end at the other. Cambie is on one side and Science World is on the other.
We have seen this cooridor expand rapidly in both breweries and tourism since 2014. The amount of breweries has more than coubled! Want to try all three regions in one day? Join our Sea to Sky Brewery Tour.
Just across the water from East Vancouver there amazing hiking, mountain biking and great beer. Ride your bike, take a taxi, tour with us or take a bus. Just get there and do your best to see a few.
Hanging out a few feet from the world famous cheif mountain face and the Sea to Sky gondola there is a few breweries that are worth the trip. Weather your live in Squamish or traveling through, just stop for a beer (Unless your driving).
Both summer and winter are great seasons to head to function junction to go see both Coast Mountain and Whistler Brewing Co. Want to see all three? It's beer tour time at 4pm when the hill closes up.
Each city is doing it differently and has their own vibe and types of beers that the locals here consume regularly. For simplicity sake we have split this into a few regions. Port Moody needs no introduction.
Home to the highest breweries in one area. We have four here worth the visit all on one block. You can even walk to them from the port moody sky train station. Worth the walking tour!
Home of some suburb favourites. If you'ree from here, these need no introduction and all are worth at least an introductory visit.
Stroll a little farther from Vancouver and you'll find some real gems! Langley and the Fraser Valley are quickly becoming a hot spot for beer tourism!
This region is split into two distinct regions. Victoria and South Island make up most of the breweries on the island. Nanaimo and North Island have some amazing smaller town breweries that are always worth the journey.
Most likely the berth place of Island beer, this route will take you a while. Start with downtown Victoria and venture your way out to Category 12 and then head up the island to either Sooke or the Cowichan Valley on your way out.
Making up amazing towns like Tofino, Nanaimo, Courtney, Comox, Port Alberni there this route will take you much longer than a week.
The Okanagan was once known for it's wine country but now what do the rest of us do when we want to drink in the sun? The craft brewery boom is on the way in the Okanagan.
This is probably the area for the biggest expansion possibilities. If Victoria has 12, Kelowna has a lot of room to grow.
Probably our biggest region geographically. This are is HUGE and would take weeks to visit all the breweries once you factor in drinking and driving laws and the vast distance between cities.
